New to me Kimber Compact Stainless

Did some trading last night and brought this home with me. Almost perfect Kimber Stainless Compact Series 1. Nights are dead but not an issue. Other than that I can't find any scratches and appears it hasn't been fired much or any. Now I can move back on my original mission paying off my layaway for my Super Carry Ultra. So many choices and not enough money. I think I'm a Kimber addict.

I'm a little new to Kimbers. Is there a big difference in series one vs two. I know there's no firing pin block but when I compare it to my CDP II I see no difference in quality between the two. Other than cosmetic differences.

I think I have the same illness. Let me know if you find a cure. Great looking gun. Love my Ultras, they are very good guns. Not sure about series one or two.

Very nice ! Now just remember, if theres not to many rounds thru it then NO complaining until it's properly broken in. That could mean up to maybe 1000 rounds of shooting and cleaning and shooting. Then after that if there's issues you can complain. Or, give it to me cause it's probably defective.......
